Spicy KC Pulled Pork

susan simons


We love pulled pork in our house this is my go to pulled pork recipe for friends, family and the freezer.
Pork shoulder is a economical cut for the family on a limited budget and is on sale alot these days; you can use bonless pork shoulder but I feel the bone in adds a much better flavor to my pulled pork.
My husband eats this without the coleslaw, but I love the coleslaw. Makes great sliders too when I need to streatch it for a bigger crowd and is easy to double and use two crockpots.
